Gallery: Banglan Sex Workers
In Bangladesh, prostitution is one of the biggest industries. It is illegal under the constitution, but anyone can join sex-work by making an affidavit with a 1st class magistrate's court or with a Notary Public if the person is above 18. Yet, the industry actually includes a large number of child sex-workers – most of them victims of human trafficking or no choice to become so because they were born in brothels. In addition, due to the slow safe sex education, many of them are infected with HIV, especially those working in the streets or poor residential areas.
